How do I add SPF or TXT records for my domain?

You can only set up TXT/SPF records for the domain in Namecheap account if it’s using our default nameservers.

In order to setup the TXT/SPF records for your domain, follow the instructions below:

   - Sign in to your Namecheap account
   - Mouse over Account option in upper right corner of the page and choose Domain List or choose Domain List menu in the bar on your left


    - Click on Manage option in front of the domain name you would like to create the TXT/SPF record for

    - Choose Advanced DNS from the top menu and click on Manage in front of Host Records option

    - On the next page you may add or edit host records for a domain or subdomains. Click Add records in order to create TXT/SPF record for your domain

Add the following data into the corresponding fields:

Record Type: choose TXT record from the drop-down menu
Record Name: here you can name the record as you wish
Host: insert @ that corresponds to your domain or the sub-domain you wish to create the TXT/SPF record for
Value: insert the necessary value of your TXT/SPF record
TTL: you may leave this option automatic

Click Save changes.

You can also use the form located here to generate a string. Then copy it and save it in the box (with no quotes). The SPF record is then automatically created in your domain's host records

 This is it!
